This week, Elon Musk unveiled Tesla‘s futuristic Cybertruck. Unfortunately for the billionaire, the reveal didn’t go as smoothly as planned. When demonstrating the vehicle’s resilience on stage the armor-glass windows shattered. Following this embarrassing fail, similar to the Cybertruck, Musk’s fortune has also taken a massive hit.

According to Forbes, Wall Street is less than impressed with Musk’s antics, and the demonstration did little to inspire investors’ confidence in the Cybertruck.  Since the unfortunate unveiling of the electric pickup truck Tesla stock has reportedly skidded. Tesla’s share price has dropped by 6% since the market close yesterday, with CEO Elon Musk’s net worth plummeting by $768 million in a single day.

Deutsche Bank analyst Emmanuel Rosner spoke out on the Cybertruck’s marketability saying, “The shattering of the truck’s unbreakable glass windows during the live demonstration was not a good start.” Since the event, some have theorized that the botched unveiling was nothing more than a publicity stunt. However, sources tell TMZ that the shattered windows were not planned and left Musk “upset, bewildered and dumbfounded.”
